Paper Abstract

The paper reports on thermal and spectral effects in polarimetric fiber optic strain sensors based on new types of highly birefringent (HB) fibers operating at infrared wavelengths. Spectral and temperature characteristics of the HB fibers have been optimized in view of enhancing their sensing capabilities and in order to minimize disturbing environmental effects. Longitudinal strain sensitivity was found to be independent on both the source bandwidth and temperature.
